Pound Mead is centrally located in arguably, one of the most beautiful and sought after villages in The New Forest and within the National Park. Burley has a local primary school, good local amenities, pubs, restaurants, a Church, village hall and golf course. The property is less than a ten minute walk from both the village centre and the open forest and is ideally situated to make full use of all the wonderful facilities the forest has to offer. Whether it be sailing at nearby Lymington (12 miles) or golf at one of the many courses in the area including Brockenhurst with its mainline railway station (8 miles, Waterloo 90 minutes.) The market town of Ringwood is but a short drive away (5 miles). The larger shopping towns of Southampton (20 miles) to the east and Bournemouth (16 miles) to the west, both with their airports are both easily accessible.
GROUNDS & GARDENS
The property is approached via a wooden five-bar gate, bounded by a brick built front wall and cattle grid. Once through the gates, you are met with a gravel driveway, offering an abundance of off-road parking for numerous vehicles and two grassed lawns with small tress and planting either side of the driveway. There is side access to both sides of the house, leading to the rear garden and patio area which spans the width of the house and has various access points into the property.
The garden is laid to lawn and has been meticulously designed and landscaped by the current owners. A winding stone pathway divides the garden through the middle, giving you lovely grass areas on either side which are host to a broad variety of plants, trees and shrubbery. The garden is bordered by large trees and hedgerow giving the plot the ultimate feel of privacy, peace, seclusion and tranquillity.
Further benefits include a useful shed with WC, green house and wooden planters ideal for vegetables.
– The property also benefits from Commoners Rights of Pasture
– A separate plot of land on Ringwood Road, Burley is available by separate negotiation – the plot amounts to 2.539 acres and includes four block built stables, electricity and water supply and Commoners Rights. There is nearby access to the open forest via Honey Lane
Access is gained into the property via a covered porch, leading into a large bright and airy main entrance hall with stairs leading to a first-floor galleried landing with an impressive, full height stain glass window. From the entrance hall, access is provided into a large double aspect kitchen/breakfast room, which has wooden flooring throughout. The kitchen offers base, wall and drawer shaker style units, which incorporate integrated appliances and a free-standing gas Range cooker and double sink. A central island provides additional workspace and storage units; this leads into a good-sized breakfast area with sliding doors leading onto the rear terrace area. Adjoining the breakfast area is a useful utility room with ample additional storage and an internal door leading into the garage, which incorporates a workshop area and parking.
Alongside the kitchen, is a well-placed dining room with a feature fireplace with Purbeck stone, a polished granite hearth and an inset log burner, this room is an ideal entertaining space. The sitting room sits just beyond the dining room and offers double aspect views over the garden, French doors leading to a covered patio area and a log burner, encased by local Purbeck stone with polished granite hearth. Leading under the staircase, there is a study, which would make an ideal home working environment and a lovely conservatory. The downstairs accommodation is completed by a downstairs WC, set off from the main hallway.
The staircase rises to a stunning and open galleried landing, where all bedroom accommodation can be accessed. The principal bedroom offers double aspect views over the beautiful garden, built-in wardrobe space and a large ensuite shower room. Bedroom two also benefits from built-in wardrobes, views over the garden and ensuite with a four-piece suite. The remaining two double bedrooms offer fantastic bright and airy space with plentiful built-in storage, they are both serviced by the family bathroom. The first floor is completed with an abundance of hallway cupboard space, meaning that this home is not short of storage.
Living in Burley
The first Spencers New Forest office was established here in Burley, a honeypot village that feels untouched by time with its traditional cafes, cider farm, gift shops and tales of old smuggling routes, witches and dragons.
This is the New Forest on holiday as imagined by visitors: quaint and old-fashioned with ponies wandering down the high street. In Burley there’s a perpetual feeling of having escaped, that you are away from it all, especially as it is tucked in the lee of wooded slopes.
In fact Burley has easy access to the A31 (across heathland with spectacular views) and routes west to Bournemouth and east to Southampton, while the mainline station at Brockenhurst is only a short drive away across the Forest.
There’s a lovely sense of community in Burley and it is noticeable that once people move here many are reluctant to move out of the area. A range of activities to enjoy locally includes cycling, horse riding, coarse fishing and Burley Golf Club with a nine-hole heathland course.
The property market is dominated by picturesque thatched cottages and large country homes that feel discreetly hidden away, many with access to open Forest.
